Any move is stressful be it for you home or office. The office can’t work without computers connected to the web and phones. Make sure to plan so your team reduces down time and plans for alternative solutions.
Here are some standard office timeframe considerations to keep in mind, courtesy of the Boston Business Journal:
- Most Internet Service Providers take 60 to 120 days to have their service installed and ready in your new space
- Most phone vendors take 30 to 90 days for their part, especially if they need to install their own circuit
- Ideally, furniture should be delivered and set up in your space a week prior to move-in to allow ample time for workstation setup
- In other words, if you’re less than four months away from your move date and you haven’t taken a look at internet providers, it’s time to pick up the phone and pick up the pace.
